    Substitute for mushrooms?

    The mushrooms are a critical component of this dish as it's a mushroom sauce.

    Can i use chicken breast instead of chicken liver?

    That would probably work well but would make a very different dish.

    This recipe was absolutely delicious. I did use 30ml less cream, as the recipe seemed to be swimming in it, and I added 15ml fresh lemon juice which thickened the sauce (acid reaction in the cream). The lemon added only 1g carbs split 4 ways. Will definitely be making this again.

    This recipe is among my favorites for good! However, I altered heavy cream to sour cream and it worked so good either! Thanks!

    Yummy. Worked well, was easy and tasted great. To get a proper mash from the broccoli I had to use an immersion blender (which gave something that looked exactly like the picture). Would be nice to mention that. Will make again.

    OMG... fabulous!!! I'm stuck self-distancing and this was incredible. I cleaned out the freezer last week out of boredom & found the chicken livers I bought for no particular reason. I didn't have shallots so I used onion. The mushrooms in my fridge went bad but I had dried mushrooms and they worked out just fine. Amazing flavors and while I've done mashed cauliflower, I never thought to use broccoli. Will make this on a permanent rotation. Thank you!

    I love liver and this recipe is an excellent variation to what I'm used to. I used single cream for the sauce and made cauli mash. Yummy.

    I'm not a liver fan, but I can't deny the nutritional properties of it. This recipe was pretty good! I found it more palatable to cut up the livers into mushroom sized pieces before incorporating with the sauce. The mushroom sauce was really tasty.

    I really loved this recipe. I had the ingredients to make broccoli mash, but I didn't get around to making it. So instead I used some frozen cauliflower rice, which I topped with the chicken liver dish, and it was amazing. I'll definitely be making this again.

    Made this tonight for dinner, my OMAD today. I skipped the mashed broccoli. I love liver & I love this dish.
